Traditionally, the Executive Committee met twice a year, once for one-and-half days following our annual winter meeting, and again following the summer APA meeting. This year, to allow more extended discussion, the Executive Committee met in hot, humid, but always-interesting Chicago, from July 17-19, 2013. Many issues were discussed, including the restructuring of the Executive Office, recommendations from the Research Practices Task Force, and updates on the annual convention, to be held in Austin in February.
